Lavie Tidhar. The Road to the Sea. (Sunvault : stories of Solarpunk and Eco-Speculation, ed Wagner/Wieland, Upper Rubber Boot, 2017.)

Read in The Year’s Best Science Fiction Thirty Fifth Annual Collection (Dozois, 2018).

A shorter story from Tidhar, and classy as usual. It’s tone is gentle and reflective, an older woman reflecting on her youth, and a trip to the sea, in a post-Climate Change world some decades hence. Not much by way of story, just a gentle tale suggesting that there may be hope even if we badly fuck things up.

Neil Clarke had another story from this anthology in his take on the Year’s Best SF.
